Student reviews

The module was laid out in a simplistic way which was ideal for a beginner such as myself. A very interesting and enjoyable module!

I had a fantastic tutor and mentor of the highest calibre. Always willing to help and explain in depth with the patience to go over work more than once. He made the effort in all aspects.

Overall this is a quite a gentle course which is useful for easing back into study if you have been out of the game for a while. At times some of the information seems very basic but it is making sure all students are brought up to the same level of understanding for future modules. As somebody who has no prior knowledge in this subject I found it useful but if you are already proficient I would not recommend this module. I would like to say that the tutor were fantastic and offered lots of support. There were textbooks sent late but it was the first time the module was running so I understand things were still being finalised.
I think the module helped me the most by showing me how broad the subject actually is.
